For my dad's gift this year I decided to do a calligraphy of part two of his favorite psalm, Psalm 19. I made part one for his birthday last year.
I had an entirely different idea of what this calligraphy was going to look like when I started, but it simply was not working. I became tired, discouraged, and (I must admit) a little frustrated, so I put it away. When I finally returned to the project just days before Christmas, I just didn't have it in me to continue rehashing the old plan and came up with a new one instead.
